Education is a human right. And, like every other human rights, it cannot be taken for granted. Apart from education being a human right, it is also a major panacea to sustainable in any country. Education is under major threat in Nigeria. Across the country, over 13 million children and 35 million adolescents are out of school. More than 20 million children do not complete primary education.
Behind these figures there are children and youth being denied not only a right, but opportunities: a fair chance to get a decent job, to escape poverty, to support their families, and to develop their communities.
In 2018 alone, MMF reached many vulnerable out of school children in various states in the Country especially in the conflict-ridden part of the North-East. We work alongside communities and partner organizations at many levels to address all aspects of basic education.
Drawing strength from our global reach, decades of experience, extensive education portfolio and partnerships, we develop innovative learning solutions and provide educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill everyone’s need to learn.
We have the capacities to train teachers and other school personnel to improve the quality of education. And also, through our policy dialogue programs, we link education programs to good governance and leadership to better address the deteriorating state of education in Nigeria. We also help communities assess and overcome their barriers to learning.
The programs under Education are listed below:
